LGBT Fertility Treatments
After many years working with families and individuals from across the world, we know that fertility issues don’t discriminate. And you deserve to have the family of your dreams, no matter your age, sexual orientation, pronouns or marital status.
That’s why we, at Reproductive Wellness provide a supportive environment dedicated to helping you conceive naturally. We understand the need in our society for welcoming, inclusive, and unbiased care for LGBT members of our community. If you are facing fertility challenges and need support, you deserve to be nurtured and cared for by professionals who value you for your unique and whole self.
Beyond just effective treatment, our staff and clinicians are dedicated to understanding your unique situation and strive to give our patients and their partners support and information that is specific to LGBT fertility concerns. We have experience with and referrals for sperm donor clinics, fertility clinics for IUI and IVF procedures, and the specific challenges that come with the journey.
Whether you are considering treatments to increase IUI success, or to manage a condition such as PCOS or endometriosis, we offer acupuncture, herbal therapy, and other integrative treatments and programs to help you achieve your goal of a healthy baby.
Since 2003, our wellness center has helped LGBT couples increase fertility through holistic medicine. At Reproductive Wellness, we understand that infertility issues range from unexplained infertility and PCOS to endometriosis and advanced maternal age. Each person is unique and needs a customized treatment plan to boost conception.
Most fertility clinics offer IVF for lesbians and IVF for gay couples, but may not provide a holistic approach to support in vitro fertilization.
Holistic fertility is our proven method to support IVF and IUI for same-sex couples. We believe that alternative medicine will enhance pregnancy success.
Each person is different, but usually, the fertility treatment plan includes one or more of the following:
- Customized nutrition plan (optimized for egg implantation and support or sperm count and quality)
- Acupuncture for increased fertility and stress relief
- Herbal and traditional therapies to support IVF or IUI
- Fertility massage to boost conception
- Focus on emotional and mental well-being
- Personalized women wellness coaching to improve conception
Let us help you get ready to have YOUR baby! We’re ready for you to feel welcome, supported, and confident in your journey to become parents and grow your family. Schedule your complimentary fertility assessment here.
How Is Functional Medicine Different?
Functional medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease. Hallmarks of a functional medicine approach include:
The focus of functional medicine is on patient-centered care, promoting health as a positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease. By listening to the patient and learning his or her story, the practitioner brings the patient into the discovery process and tailors treatments that address the individual’s unique needs.
An integrative, science-based healthcare approach.
Functional medicine practitioners look upstream” to consider the complex web of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body, and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning.
Integrating best medical practices.
Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what are sometimes considered alternative” or integrative” medicine, creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations of drugs and/or botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques.
